Why Energy Recovery
“ … the beam

induced voltage in a cavity is the same
whether or not a generator voltage component is present.”
(Wilson 1991,
sect. 6.1 The Fundamental Theorem of Beam Loading )
The beam induced voltage is always negative.
Therefore, if a bunch enters at the opposite phase
of the cavity field, it will increase the amplitude of
the field.
This gives energy to the cavity.
(Sakanaka ERL07)

How the beam affects the cavity voltage
All voltages defined along the axis of cavity (beam path):
generator (klystron) voltage V
g
beam induced voltage V
b
and resultant cavity voltage V
c
Assuming all sinusoidal, they can be related by a phasor diagram.

Steps are easy once we have worked from
Wiedemann and Wilson.
